This is happening now.  Georgia has pending legislation for forensic
examination of information systems.  If you aren't licensed as an
Investigator in the state, you can be charged with a felony if the law
passes.

I can't find a link, but I swear I read this a couple days ago. 
Anyone have any info, or was I hallucinating :)

All funning aside, this was included in a topic of a BoF at the recent

ShmooCon held in DC.  The speakers contended that unless the community

becomes self-policing, there WOULD eventually be government 
legislation to license information security practitioners.  
Interesting theory.  I like the idea of shipping all unlicensed 
practitioners to Lincoln.
Could do wonders for that local economy. :-)

Regards.

Why not license security engineers/gurus like they

Then after one gets everyone to comply, partner
with an insurance company to offer liability and malpractice 
insurance to the licensed penetration testers, just in case someone 
accidently shuts down a life support system in a hospital as they 
are scanning random Class 'C's on the internet or hijacking root DNS

servers in order to play audio streams.

For those who do not comply, set up Senate
hearings, and send out letters to those who do not comply, "Are you 
an unlicensed penetration tester?"
If yes, please list all your friends, neighbors, etc that may or may

not be unlicense penetration testers.  Once they have rounded up all

the non complying penetration testers, escort them to local train 
stations, and guide them onto the train, where they will be taken to

re-education camps in Lincoln, Nebraska.  --:)

If it's not from the government, it's not a real
license.

certainly practices it
with impunity.
